1998 Mark VIII LSC
followed the instructions in page 1 of this sticky to set up data capture, but am having two redundant problems:
1)after naming and describing a DLF (datalog setup file), then successfully adding it to the handheld xc2, then plugging it into the obd2 on my car, and enabling/positioning the datalog items (commands) to be measured, I get a message "invalid ecm type"...no data capture to be done
Problem #2) after adding the DLF to the xc2, and trying to set up (enable and positiion) data capture (with xc2 still connected to my PC) the description/name of the DLF shows up on the xc2 (ex. BASICS), but none of the commands (datalog items) are displayed to be enabled or positioned...only the name of the DLF shows up when I choose to set up data capture!
I was told by my tuner, that when adding the DLF (datalog set up file) from the PC software to the xc2, to check the PIDS box, but NOT to bullet any of the EEC-V types, that I should leave that blank. I've tried leaving it blank, as well as choosing 112k EEC V, and 216K EEC V.
Right ECU ID?
when configuring datalog items to strategy, I first have to enter my car's ECU ID (strategy)...based on this photo, is the fifth character the number zero? or is it the letter 'O'?
